    FS: Holton Five-Zero-Zero Supreme Power Amp

    My preference is silver. You can read the engraving. I'm sure it sounds awesome whatever the colour. At night it's black. Same old story - if I had the coin.

  5. Late input but just came across the post. I ran my Kappa 9's with a krell ksa100s amp for many many years. Only 100wpc but plenty of current supply. The only time it looked like running out of omph was when the speakers were set to extended mode. When switched to normal mode they sang. The music the combination made was like a match made in heaven. After selling both the speakers and amp in a downsizing exercise I'm still searching for that same scale of sound. The big current supply amps will do the job as less than 1 ohm impedance loads are hard work.

    Thanks @deanB. Yes there's something very enjoyable about Adelaide speakers which allows many hours of good listening. They never become fatiguing. Somewhat regrettable sale but need to move on but I know where I can go to enjoy the sound (plus a couple beers) while at it😁😁.

    Passive only mate. I think the power figure indicates recommended amp power max as often shown on speakers alongside impedance loads.

    Yep. I'm amazed at great aussie craftsmen. Cabinet work I can barely see the joints and the sound that Edward creates is great bang for buck value.
  11. Item: Adelaide Ascension Summoner floorstanding speakers Model PRTL1093 Location: Perth Price: SOLD PENDING PAYMENT $800 price reduction to $700 for Perth pickup. Interstate parties to arrange own freight and costs. Item Condition: 9.5/10 because it's not brand new Reason for selling: Too many floorstanders. Need some more floor space. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, direct bank deposit, COD Only Extra Info: Edward's creations punch above their weight for the asking price. Those guys who have heard them have been surprised at their musicality with both solid state and tube amps. Very easy to drive at 92-93db with minimum impedance of 6.8 ohm (8 ohm average for these with Peerless woofer). Freq response 24-40,000Hz +/-2db. 1 pair multi way binding posts make for easy cable connection to suit personal preferences. I upgraded the 250mm woofer to Peerless with extra magnets installed per Edward's suggestion for improved bass performance and efficiency. SB Acoustic 135mm midrange with wonderful ribbon tweeter combine to make for very smooth musical experience for all tastes. The transmission line bass loaded cabinet provides a solid extended bass line which is especially tuneful. Those who are familiar with transmission line designs such as found on PMC, TDL, IMF will be familiar with the sound. The imaging extends well behind and to the sides of the speakers creating an impressive soundstage. I use with both valve and Solid state amps and the overall tone I would describe as slightly on the warm detailed side allowing for many hours of fatigue free listening. Timber veneer cabinets finished in light american oak with fabric clip on speaker covers. Can't find a mark on them. Have original boxes. Local buyers preferred as these may cost a bit to transport at 34Kg each. Packing carton dimensions 1270 x 480 x 380 for interested interstate parties to obtain freight prices. Actual speaker dimensions are 1120 x415 x 300. For further information please PM me. Thanks for looking. Pictures:

  14. Hehe. The fun is in the trying. I find each has its own sound whether due to cable type, geometry, shielding materials, connection type and plug type and combinations there of. Not to mention system synergy with components. I've needed to whittle many down @Bill125812 but yours are still going along with Geoff's. They have all been VG and make nice music. Happy days. To try is to learn. Bump. Only couple cables unspoken for. The AP solo Crystal IC is a beauty and surprised not already snapped up.

    Hi @doogie44 Sorry. I have no idea mate. I have only used asynchronous USB input but have never had any noise issues. I only use a jitterbug at laptop output to USB cable. Clay at Gieseler is the chap to chat with in this regard.
